Inspired by the agricultural focus of the The Ohio State University CFAES Wooster campus and the history of its land, the sculpture illustrates the connection between plant life, agriculture, community, and growth. The glasswork contains patterns that reflect the different areas of study. Tracings of plant cells, animal cells, insect wings, mushrooms, the honeycomb structure, and a ruminant’s reticulum can be found on the printed glass, while the dichroic finish suggests the field of entomology.
